It is not a secret that most Islamic political parties in Iraq have some connection with Iran. However, since the protests both opposition parties in Kurdistan have kept their distance from Iran because Kurdish public mistrust the Iranian Islamic regime and its intentions. Moreover, if the report is turns out to be true, it will be a severe blow to both the Islamic parties. The incumbent parties would obviously accuse them of being Iran's proxy and public may turn against them.
Yet another problem, lying in store for the future, created by lack of vision from KRG. This has let political Islam flourish and become an alternative to modern secular values which has been betrayed by the incumbent political parties. Kurdish society is largely muslins but fundamentalism is frowned upon and not many people want to see an Islamic state.
One can interpret this move as a cynical move by PUK to embarrass Goran who take residence in a property in Slemani, which used to be publicly owned youth centre. Alternatively, it may be another signal to KDP, saying that PUK is willing to change and are ready to dare KDP.
